Contemporary Art Magazines: A Critical Writing Reading Group #16

28 Aug 2017, Mon 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM
The Seminar Room, Block 43 Malan Road

Contemporary Art Magazines: A Critical Writing Reading Group is focused on a single issue of an art magazine at every meeting. The goal is to generate a conversation that will discuss both the contemporary art scene and the practice of publishing and writing about art. A sense of continuation is not based on reading the same magazine, but rather, on asking similar questions across the board of publishing. Such questions can range from the mundane (Why is this being published right now? Is the writing worthwhile? What is the editorial line like, if one seems to exist?) to the expansive (What makes for a real contribution in art publishing? What is the role of criticism in contemporary art?). The goal is to generate a conversation that would discuss both the contemporary art scene and the practice of publishing and writing about art. Similarly, the choice of magazines can and should vary from the obvious to the specific.
